Raven Crag is part of the 160 acre Low Fell open access land near Loweswater in the northwest Lake District.

There is a mosaic of habitat types on Low Fell, including blanket bog and bilberry heathland, which are being retained. There is also peatbog restoration in a part of the site.

The site is mostly covered in bracken and the trees are being planted in dense clusters, to mimic how trees regenerate in nature.

A wide variety of native, British trees species are being planted throughout the area, improving its biodiversity.

This will create new wildlife habitats and corridors as well as providing food and nectar sources for birds and other animals.

When visiting Raven Crag we strongly advise wearing sturdy boots as it's quite a hike from the road! The views are well worth the 30 minute hike though 🙂

Parking is limited in the area but there are a few spaces alongside Loweswater Lake. From there you can walk up the track and zig-zag your way until you see the entrance stile for Raven Crag.
